National Poetry Day
Zone 9 - Digital Zone
National Poetry Day is the annual mass celebration on the first Thursday of October that encourages all to enjoy, discover and share poetry.
This year, National Poetry Day will take place on the 1st October 2020, and the theme is Vision. We encourage you to get involved with activities nationwide on the day, to See It Like a Poet and to #ShareAPoem.
National Poetry Day generates an explosion of activity nationwide, thousands of amazing events across the UK – in schools, libraries, bookshops and hospitals, on buses, trains and boats – all celebrating poetry’s power to bring people together.
The Day starts conversations, it encourages love of language—and best of all, it’s open to absolutely everyone to join in, quietly or noisily in rewarding and enjoyable ways.
